This year's second and third combined issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shounen Magazine announced on Wednesday that Tozen Ujiie's school comedy manga Seitokai Yakuindomo will receive an anime film. Commemorating the manga's 10th anniversary, the film is scheduled to premiere in theaters in Japan on July 21, 2017. Staff and cast members will reprise their roles from the previous anime seasons and original video episodes. KlockWorx will be distributing the film.

The first set of advance ticket sales has begun on Friday, which includes a mini shikishi board with illustrations by the manga author Tozen Ujiie. A second set of advance ticket sales including a school calendar will begin in March 2017, with a third wave planned for a later date. Customers will receive a different bonus item each week with new illustrations by Ujiie for the first four-week run of the film.

Furthermore, Kodansha's official website of the series announced that the 15th limited edition volume of the manga will bundle an original video animation, shipping on September 15, 2017. The pre-order deadline for the limited edition volume retailing for ¥3,400 (US$29) is July 14, 2017.

Ujiie launched the 4-koma manga in Kodansha's monthly Magazine Special in 2007, before it transferred to Weekly Shounen Magazine the following year. GoHands adapted the manga into two television anime seasons in 2010 and 2014. The manga also inspired eight original video episodes between April 2011 and October 2013. A second series of original video animation have been bundled with compiled manga volumes since May 2014. The 14th limited edition manga volume, which goes on sale on Friday, will bundle an original video episode.

Okay, now everyone back off for a little bit! You're telling me SYD is back?! Well technically we still have one more OVA, but fuck yeah I'll take a movie.

Time for 90% sex jokes, 9% Suzu's height joke and 1% misc jokes.

"I want a Suzu" please! She's so cute and way normal.

Dec 14, 2016 9:26 PM by DarklordVor

It's time to re watch greatness

Dec 14, 2016 7:58 PM by Johnchan12

More repetitive low-brow sex humour, hooray!
(Suzu is cute though)

Dec 14, 2016 8:30 AM by SeijiroUshio

Lol, more Seitokai...

This should be amusing. I'm ready for all the jokes again.

Not bad, this is one of the few good comedy series that are actually funny even tho they rely too much on dirty jokes.

Will watch the movie a year from when it gets released.

Dec 14, 2016 6:05 AM by Ramkec

Well this is just the best.

Dec 14, 2016 5:35 AM by Retolee

which arc will it adapted? or it will go original story? both are win win for me as long the joke still there... the real dirty joke is here baby...

Dec 14, 2016 3:23 AM by Kuma

The news of movie was surprising as I don't know how can it be made for a series like this with no story whatsoever.

But yeah, I'm really happy for the news.
